Anti-corruption charge in Vietnam commended
Vietnam’s intensified crackdown on corruption has continued to draw praise from the international community.
According to the PAPI 2019, while the anti-corruption drive is changing perceptions, there is continued evidence of significant declines in petty corruption, as experienced by citizens in district-level public hospitals and when applying for land use right certificates.
While control of corruption scores has improved, a substantial number of respondents (20-45 percent) continue to perceive corruption as prevalent in the public sector. This suggests that further efforts are needed to address this problem in the coming years.
